're against deficits. this or that program. we know they're against obamacare. great. what are they for? >> right. as you pointed out in the beginning, congressman camp held hearings all over the country. he's listen eed to a lot of people. much of what came out of those hearings which is to say, i believe there is broad political support in the country going in that direction. republicans should take advantage of that. >> thank you all. >>> when we come back, the pentagon proposing to slash the army to pre-world war ii levels. what it means for the interests abroad next. this program is brought to you by blue emu. it would fast. with my friends, we'll do almost anything. out for drinks, eats. i have very well fitting dentures. i like to eat a lot of fruits. love them all. the seal i get with the super poligrip free keeps the seeds from getting up underneath. even well-fitting dentures let in food particles. super poligrip is zinc free. with just a few dabs, it's clinically proven to seal out more food particles so you're more comfortable and confident while you eat. a lot of things goi
